The next Come Grow With Us presentation will be Grafting Apple Trees noon Wednesday at the Ag Country Auditorium at the West Central Research and Outreach Center in Morris. The free session will be led by David Vaske, owner and operator of Miltona Greenhouses in Alexandria. WCROC Research Scientist Steve Poppe explained to KMRS why the unusual practice of grafting is needed for apple trees.

Hands-on demonstrations will be part of the event. Those who wish to bring home a grafted tree are asked to bring a utility knife, heavy-duty leather utility gloves, newspaper, and $5 to cover costs payable to Miltona Greenhouses.
